EA's Tetris games are vanishing from mobiles

EA's Tetris games are vanishing from mobiles

Tetris fans, a new and official Tetris title has launched for Android and iOS, here to replace the now-deleted Tetris app that launched back in 2011.

We have had an fantastic journey with you so far but sadly, it is time to say goodbye. As it turns out, EA doesn't actually own the Tetris game.

Unfortunately, EA has announced that it will be ending support for the beloved puzzle game on April 21, 2020. However, Android Police points out that you can still access cached Play Store pages for Tetris 2011 and Tetris Blitz if you want to install them before the April 21 cut off.

On the back of each is the same glossy glass camera block with a 12MP main camera and larger 64MP zoom (but only 3x telephoto). The image revealed that the phone could be sporting a rectangle-shaped camera housing featuring four cameras and an LED flash.

EA is shutting down its mobile Tetris games from April 21st 2020 nearly a decade after the first smartphone title was released.

This new title is licensed by Tetris Company, developed by N3TWORK as part of a new multiyear agreement. Kindly note that you will still be able to enjoy the game and use any existing in-game items until April 21, 2020.

N3twork's concept for the replacement game will immediately sound familiar to anyone who's tried Tetris 99 on Nintendo Switch. The app features a traditional solo gameplay experience, both online and offline, and will be updated with new gameplay modes in the future. I wish I could independently verify that for you but I'm afraid I suck at Tetris too much.
